1) Objective

With its mission to ensure that all youth have equal access to education, meaningful employment and opportunities to develop their potential, the Bhutan Youth Development Fund (YDF) is working to provide financial support for youth development activities like leadership and volunteerism, drug rehabilitation, special education, basic skills and vocational training, and advocacy for youth-oriented policy.

The Fund runs the following programs: (1) Drug Education and Rehabilitation; (2) Empowerment for Employment; and (3) Youth Participation and Child Protection. The Fund also provides sponsorships for children to complete their (primary and secondary) education and runs the Golden Youth Award that is designed to recognise and reinforce achievements made by young people in their communities. The latter is directed at schools or associations that may wish to nominate students who exemplify outstanding qualities, strengthen the country’s social fabric and enrich their culture.

2) Eligibility

Eligible for funding are local non-profit organisations and associations.

3) Location

Funding is provided for projects in Bhutan.

4) Budget

No standard funding amount is set. The amount of assistance is decided based on the details of the project and the project budget plan.

5) Application
